Rooms with a Pittsburgh view and private balconies, too

The Quality Inn University Center is in an ideal location for visitors looking to stay near Pittsburgh's major medical centers and universities. Many are walkable from the hotel's front door, if not in plain sight from one of the hotel's private balconies. Guests not interested in walking can catch a ride on the hotel's complimentary shuttle. Fans of Panera Bread restaurants will be thrilled to discover a location in the hotel lobby.

Friendly Staff; good location for Univ of Pitt

We were on a marathon of college visits, which the staff picked up immediately as we checked in. They were very helpful, providing campus maps without being asked. Being able to walk to campuses was a plus. Hotel is average. We had a smoking room because they were sold out, and the curtains were stained, not to mention the odor in the room and on the floor.

Birthday weekend

We only stayed one night for the location. It was an ideal location for where our friend lived, so we could meet up with her for her birthday. Room was clean and typical.

off to a very bad start

Room very noisy - could hear neighbors every move beside and above us, and outside our door at the elevator. Worst experience was upon arrival in room, entire toilet seat assembly was completely off its base and perpindicular to the toilet tank - thus unusable. Who rents a room to anyone in that condition? They did, however, fix it while we were out.

Refurbished hotel in great location

Older hotel; however, new carpet, fresh paint, and clean and comfortable bed! Excellent location, close to downtown PGH, Oakland, and East End. Friendly and courteous staff!
